Investments – A Brief Explanation

Please take a few moments to watch the video (1min 2 secs)

Where Do I Start?

Our investment experts have many years of experience in dealing with small and large investments. The procedure will always follow a similar path: We start by reviewing your needs and goals, decide how long you want to invest for, how much you want to invest, help you to build a plan then set up everything on your behalf.

Once everything is set up we arrange periodical financial reviews (usually annually) to show you how your investment strategy is progressing and discuss any changes to your plan as required.

Making the Right Choices

With so many options, how do you choose the right one for you? The sheer choice available can make investing seem incredibly complicated, even for people who’ve done it before. At Karrek Financial we can make investing your money simple and straightforward.

Our approach to investment advice is based on an understanding of your needs and how much risk you’re prepared to take. We can introduce you to worldwide investment opportunities from some of the UK’s leading fund managers. So wherever you decide to invest, you can be sure your money will be in professional hands.

If you are thinking of investing, why not arrange a chat with Andrew or Dan, our investment experts – Contact them here or call on 01637 853153 during office hours.

Please remember the value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
